The 49ers now officially have another weapon in the passing game.
According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers officially activated wide receiver Michael Crabtree to the 53-man roster, waiving quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson to create the roster spot.
The move was filed before today’s deadline for activating him from the physically unable to perform list, and they’re going to likely use him soon. As we mentioned earlier today, they’re hoping to have him back on the field this week against the Rams.
Cutting Bethel-Thompson leaves them with just two quarterbacks, as Colt McCoy’s the only backup to Colin Kaepernick.
